There are two primary Ph.D. training tracks or specializations in the Brain and Cognitive Sciences cluster : Cognition and Perception, and Neuroscience.
In addition to pursuing a Ph.D. in the Psychology Department, graduate students can also join the interdisciplinary Temple Neuroscience Program which includes faculty from Biology, Pharmacology, Physical Therapy, or Psychology Departments. For more information please see http://www.temple.edu/neuroscience/
In the Neuroscience specialization, faculty research interests include: The pre and post synaptic molecular substrates of long-lasting memories; pre clinical (animal) psychopharmacological studies of drugs and molecular targets of drugs affecting learning and memory; the functioning of learning and memory in normal and clinical populations (including patients with circumscribed lesions and patients with neurodegenerative diseases).
